Stage Controller

Smart controller of motorised sample stages for SEM and SEM-FIB, up to 6 motors or steppers, including touch alarm and hardware limits, with direct joystick control or software control over USB port.

Stage controller increases efficiency of microscope operation with

  • High-speed repositioning to coordinates, screen point or saved locations, including backslash correction
  • Automatic sample reorientation with rotation and displacement corrections
  • Integrated touch alarm and safe zone limits, including hardware retraction on touch

In combination with imaging systems, the stage controller enables large area techniques

  • Record automatic data for image stitching over large areas.
  • Acquire sparse sampled image data for statistic analysis.
  • Return to acquisition position for further inspection.
